Hello and Welcome to Lingo Masters!
I am Sarah, the one behind this website. I am originally from China but grew up in the beautiful capital of France, Paris. Having always been passionate about learning new languages I got a Bachelor’s degree in Chinese Mandarin, as well as FLE (Français Langue Etrangère – mainly dedicated to teach French as a second language) at University Paris 7 Denis Diderot. As it wasn’t easy for me to learn English in France, I spent a little over a year in language schools in the United States where I came across different but yet very helpful approaches in teaching. That was very different from the language classes that I had experienced before.
After coming back, I graduated with a Master’s degree in Foreign Languages (English/Chinese Mandarin) applied to International Business (aka Master’s in International and Cross Cultural Management) at University Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense.
As a language lover, I have always tried to work in an International environment. Some of my working experiences were teaching French and Chinese Mandarin. I also worked for a few years as an Interpreter for a translation firm where I was mainly sent to the OFPRA (Office Français de Protection et Apatrides) and the CNDA (Cour Nationale du Droit d’Asile), which are organizations that deal with political refugees seeking asylum in France. I also had a great experience in the aviation field, as an ATO (Approved Training Organization) administrator.
From my experience, I know how hard it is to learn a new language, but I also know how great it is when you can speak a foreign language and connect with new people. I will try my best to make your learning journey with LingoMasters.com as smooth as possible.
